Missionary, doggy style, or riding; on the floor, in the club, or on the roof; spit, lube, or lotion; top, bottom, or flip; if you’re like me you like it all of the ways mentioned above and more. Sex is one of the greatest parts of life. However, sex is more than just a quick fun blast of pleasure sure to make the sheets messy. There are many health benefits to having sex. Here are six of them.
1. Calories will burn while you thrust and churn
The thrusting, bouncing, grinding, rolling, and wrestling are all physical activities that will get you breathing heavy in more than one way.
According to Men’s Health, “a raucous romp uses about 5 METs (metabolic equivalents), a system for gauging the intensity of physical activity. For example, a 190-pound man would burn 413 calories in an hour of vigorous sexual activity.”
So, don’t skip the foreplay!
2. Relieve your stress as you jerk and caress
We can all imagine the feeling of euphoria as we come closer to the big release. According to the Wall Street Journal, “The rush of hormones boosts mood, fosters feelings of closeness and helps manage stress for days.”
3. Shoot on that chest for a great night’s rest
As most of us know, after getting off we tend to be a little groggy. To help ensure you get a good night’s rest, be sure to have sex before bed or at least give each other head.
4. Your heart will grow strong from doing it all night long
A sexually active lifestyle is not just for the young. Having sex regularly can drastically reduce risks of heart disease. The British Psychological Society states, “In a Welsh heart disease study from 1997, the mortality risk was 50 percent lower in the group of men with high orgasmic frequency (twice a week or more) than in the group with low frequency.”
5. That fountain of goo can make a younger you
There are several factors that contribute to aging, but Dr. David Weeks, a consultant clinical psychologist and former Head of Old Age Psychology suggests, “The key ingredients for looking younger are staying active and maintaining a good sex life.”
6. Plow that hole for a happier soul
Money cannot buy happiness, but sex can. The release of endorphins during intimacy can bring upon a euphoric feeling that can last the rest of the day/night.
So my advice is to have sex daily for a happier life! One thing not to forget, cuddle after! Some of you may disagree, but make your partner(s) feel like you care when the love making is complete. The world does not revolve around you and you should respect and appreciate the person(s) that helped you achieve your climax.
Always use protection and talk to your partner(s) before engaging in a sexual act. Know who you blow!
